    - Carla -'s Note:

    Another hearty low-fat soup from Lynn Fischer's "Fabulous Fat-Free Cooking" I've altered it slightly, adding the use of fresh herbs for additional flavor.

      I didn't have a turnup so I substituted diced rutabaga instead. I also increased the water from two cups to four. I like this soup very much. gabe geber

      This was very good. I fried the bacon a little first (right in the pot) before I added the other ingredients. It made the bacon a little less mushy, and I think added a little more bacon flavor to the finished soup.
